Comments about Pentalic Recycled Traveler's Sketchbooks:
As a writer and cartoonist, I often use my all-purpose writing notebook for rough sketches on the go. This is the best paper I've ever found for the joint purposes of writing and illustration. It is COMPLETELY opaque. Zero ink bleed, even when you use an art marker. You can get opacity in other sketchbooks, of course, but usually the tradeoff is that the texture of the paper is too rough to be ideal for longhand writing. But this paper is smooth and lovely. (For reference, I do most of my writing with Pilot, Mach, and Zebra rollerball pens; I've done art on these pages in felt-tip, Micron, and various brush pens.) Quite possibly the best notebook for the price.

Perfect pocket sketch book
By Mrs Cyclops
A few years ago, I had a 3.5x5 mixed media journal, which I filled with whimsical doodle-type drawings. I'm not much of an artist, but I enjoyed it. When I filled the book, I found that the size was discontinued, so I've been looking for a new one, and I like these little books even better than the other. The only real difference is that the other one had a spiral binding, but I find that I can still open it flat enough to draw comfortably. It's a little smaller, but I like the size, and the little books look so cool. My only complaint? DB doesn't carry it in the other three colors, but I can live with that!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I purchased this to keep with me for spur of the moment drawings and lettering. I absolutely love it. The paper is a wonderful quality and the size is great as it fits in my purse without any issues. I will need to purchase a new one soon to replace this one!
Great quality item

I carry this in my purse so I have a way to take quick notes, draw quick sketches, capture new ideas.

Really like it.
from Columbus, OH
I am using it for sketching,journal writing, and random notation. I bend it every which way and it's holding up nicely. I wouldn't consider this for any kind of formal presentation,though. The soft cover dents and scratches easily. I am used to using hardbound books, but I think I'll be switching to these.
High Quality for a Great Price
from Los Angeles
This is definitely one of my favorite sketchbooks ever! I've always liked smaller sketchbooks to work in, so the sizes are perfect. The paper is surprisingly high quality for such a good value, and is very sturdy for working in watercolors/light inks. The book itself is also very steadfast; I've thrown it around several times throughout the months and it's still in very good condition. The cover is soft but thick, and the soft waterproof material adds a nice touch for artists working on the go. And there's even a little pocket in the back cover; since I work with paper it's very convenient for storing anything I need!Overall, an amazing product. I will be purchasing more in the future.
This products cover to begin with is really smooth and fun to touch and use. I use these notebooks for my fashion design class at school. Its grest for quick sketches and also finalized ones. Its perfect, can seem to find an error.

Love this inexpensive high-quality sketchbook! Great paper and it opens flat so you could easily do a double-page spread. The cover is a nice soft material, too and comes in a variety of colors. Great price.
from Fredericksburg, va
This is the 3rd one I bought. Really good for notes and pencil sketches. I use it with copics and fine liners as well. The copics bleed a bit, but it's good enough for my uses. I've also got some of my friends to buy it and recieved good feedback as well. So, yep. I would probably buy another after this one.
